Words To Live By #10 ‘Dare To Be’


Quaerite Et Invenietis  “Seek and you will find”


“There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed”


‘Dare To Be’ by American author Steve Maraboli teaches us that we don’t have to be at the mercy of our circumstances if we just have the audacity to dare.


“When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.

When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.

When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.

When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.

When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.

When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.

When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.

When times are tough, dare to be tougher.

When love hurts you, dare to love again.

When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.

When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.

When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.

When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.

When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great, too.

When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.

Dare to be the best you can –

At all times, Dare to be!”


May God bless and protect you and…

May you always be

Healthy, Happy

Safe and Comfortable

    # Though my family and close friends say it would be far more entertaining with a video-camera* in the “real world”, rather than in cyberspace!)
    * By the way, do they still make them in today’s ever-faster changing world..or is it all done with mobile phones?

    (get with the times now,”luddite”* c – it should be a smart phone)

    * or so I was often called by my “my techno-geek” friend, Bill (“the gonk”)

    “total non-techno” c (who doesn’t possess a mobile phone, after a rather eventful’ experience some years back, whilst trying to walk, talk and chew gum at the same time) #

    The impossible we do immediately; however miracles take a little longer!

    Who says men can’t multi-task!

    Well my family and friends say I’m “safest” just writing and sharing

    Driven to share, uplift, encourage and (perhaps even) inspire

    and one day you’ll be right!

    Don’t worry about the world ending today…
